We are honored to announce that Beate Volker has been appointed to become member of the Royal Holland Society of Sciences and Humanities (KHMV).

The Royal Holland Society of Sciences and Humanities was established in 1752 by seven distinguished burghers of the city of Haarlem, in order to promote science. It is the oldest learned society in the country today and is constituted as a dual body comprising approximately 400 "science promoters" and an equal number of active scholars - known as members - drawn from the natural sciences, the humanities and the social sciences. Links with institutions outside the Netherlands are maintained by the appointment of foreign members. Membership is granted by invitation only.

Beate Volker

Is Professor of Sociology at the University of Amsterdam, programme director of Institutions, Inequalities and Life Courses, which is part of the Amsterdam Institute for Social Science Research, and affiliated member of the Centre for Urban Studies and Amsterdam Centre for Inequality Studies.
